Near Tower Theater, Upper Darby

Going to The Tower for a show. Any recommendations on a place close by to eat prior to the show?

      It isn't directly across the street, it's more closer to the H-Mart shopping center which is 2-3 blocks away.

      Best place to get food is the H-Mart shopping center. There are 2 Vietnamese restaurants (Little Saigon and Pho & Cafe Anh Hong), an awesome Chinese dumpling spot (drawing a blank on the name), good Mexican (Don Memo) and a bunch of decent Korean food stalls in the upstairs shopping area of the H-Mart.

      There is also Pica's for interesting pizza approximatelty 5 mins away on West Chester Pike, and a block away from Pica's is Cawley's for above average bar food/drinks and good Irish meals.

        I think Yang Yang is the dumpling place---and if that's what you mean, it is really, really good!

          Pica's is nasty. People do seem to like their take-out pies, but I wouldn't eat in their dining room again if you paid me.

      2. I heard there was a great Korean BBQ place with all-you-can-eat deals right there. I think it's called Philly's BBQ. If I can dig up any more info, I'll post again.
